Operation Safe Streets evening rallies

The City is sponsoring Operation Safe Streets evening rallies in neighborhoods throughout the City. The times are between 5:00-7:00 PM. Mayor Street will participate for 45 minutes to an hour, generally between 5:30-6:30 PM. The rallies are aimed at demonstrating the partnership between the police and the residents. They will also demonstrate the residents’ resolve, unanimity, and strength, and send a clear message to drug dealers that the streets are no longer in their control.

City departments will provide service information at these rallies and answer questions regarding quality of life issues in the neighborhoods. Representatives from the Police Department, the Managing Directors’ office, the Office of Social Services, P.A.A.N., Operation Town Watch, Weed and Seed, Settlement Houses, and Family Centers will be there.

There will also be hoagies, salads, soft drinks, and water ice on hand. So..here are the next dates. I’ll add these to the PhillyBlocks calendar over the next day.
